I grow H. 'Baja' and am quite fond of it. I tell people who come to me for reds that they ought to plant H. 'Anzac' and H. 'Baja' together. 'Anzac' blooms first and 'Baja' follows with some overlap. They are indistinguishable from one another to me and both planted together will give a solid 6 weeks of bloom.
I have grown BAJA for many years, and it has always done well for me. It is fairly tall with nice upright scapes, and it has a great extended bloom period. It is rain and sun fast for me with very nice vivid red flowers. It's a favorite red in my gardens.
Happiness is doing for those who cannot do for themselves.
I have grown Baja for almost 10 years. I purchased it from a local garden center. Has never failed to bloom and scapes are always maximum height. Very slow to multiply w/o fertilizer but but very showy blooms. I consider it a keeper for long time to come.
Someone thinks this this is representative of all daylilies. About 5 years ago, I went to Kew Gardens in England. I inquired about daylilies and they said they had two Baja and Stella d'oro and did not need anymore. Odd because they have a very active daylily and hosta society in that country. Just think what they are missing?
I got some plants of Baja from my mother and was also later given Baja, it has done very well here. It does have a 3.0 rating for rust, and it does show rust here in my garden. Still, it is a tall daylily here that holds up its blooms very well, it has been a solid performer here so far. It has multiplied very well here in the short time I have had it.
